Engineering for Kids Summer Camps
Jr LEGO Robotics: Simple Machines United (ages 4-7)
We use simple machines every day , but many times without even recognizing them. In Junior Robotics: Simple Machines Untied, students will explore the basic concepts of simple machines and how we use them to achieve even our most grandiose goals! Students will use LEGO WeDo construction and resource kits to produce new and exciting builds that will be used to create Kelvin's Amusement Park.
App LEGO Robotics: Ocean Missions (ages 8-12)
This LEGO Robotics: Ocean Missions curriculum is designed to introduce students to the world of robotics in an interesting and engaging way. The goal is to teach students about the building and programming aspects of robotics as it relates to real-world issues in ocean exploration.
Engineering of Power and Energy (ages 8-12)
Power and energy are what everything requires to move, turn on, light up, and make noise. In the Engineering of Power and Energy camp, students will break up into engineering teams and help each other to create unique ways to harness, manipulate, and use energy efficiently. Each day, students will have the chance to add a power-up light to their power and energy meter by completing that day's camp challenge.
Hardware Engineering: Physical and Digital Interface (ages 8-12)
In Hardware Engineering camp, students will use electronics, mechanics, and programming to create custom sensors. They will become hardware engineers, using Scratch programming, Makey Makey circuit boards, and various building materials to design and test their creations. Over the course of the class, we will make a whack-a-mole game, a personalized quiz board, and a device to determine the winner of a race.
